Fiona Simpson, 23, was driving in southern Queensland with her 78-year-old grandmother and 4-month-old daughter, Clara, on Thursday when the weather suddenly took a turn for the worse, the Australian Broadcasting Company (ABC) reports. Fiona Simpson was caught in the middle of it. "I couldn't see in front of me, I couldn't even see the line on the road".

Simpson suffered several nasty bruises, but her grandmother was more seriously injured.

Simpson told The Project that she pulled her daughter out of her auto seat and put her on the floor for protection while she tried to cover her grandmother.

The mother made a decision to pull the vehicle over to the side of a road to wait out the storm.

The mother said the hail and the storm were so loud she could see her daughter screaming "but I couldn't even hear her, that's how loud it was".

"It knocks you down".

Simpson told the outlet that she quickly pulled her vehicle to the side of the road to wait out the storm - but that it quickly became apparent that the threat was still imminent.

She later posted confronting images of her injuries on social media, her back, shoulders and arms a mess of angry welts and bruises.
